Hey parents! Are you super annoyed that you have to wait 18 whole years before shelling out thousands of dollars for your child’s college education? Well, have we got some good news for you! If you live in NYC, you can enroll your BABY in the brand new Explore+Discover private school for the awesome price of $2,791 per week. Need us to break that down for you? That’s a whopping $11,164 per month. Assuming your child attends all year, minus summer break, that’s $100,476 annually. As Mail Online points out, just to compare, yearly tuition fees at Harvard University are $43,938. Still, maybe this is a fair price to pay for… wait, what exactly are you paying for? Well, the school, located in Manhattan’s affluent Gramercy Park neighborhood, caters only to 80 wee babes at a time, between the ages of 3 months and 23 months. Exclusive! The school space itself is guided by the Reggio Emilia approach to education, which promotes physical spaces as having a profound impact on learning. Thus, each classroom and outdoor space is designed to invite exploration, sharing and personal connection. Then there’s the curriculum. Keep reading to see what your baby will learn at this school.

Would you pay $2,791 per week for your baby to essentially learn to play and socialize?
